The 1981 Oakland Raiders

With Jim Plunkett (pictured in 2011) under center, the Raiders won the Super Bowl in 1980. But when the Raiders were 2-4 following three straight shutouts, Plunkett was replaced with 1980 first-round pick Marc Wilson. They played .500 ball the rest of the way and missed the playoffs with a 7-9 record, fourth in the AFC West.
